A Day Worth Celebrating

Today is the 134th Birthday of my favorite place on earth. I felt it absolutely necessary to celebrate such an occassion since it is most certainly a major factor in where I am and who I am today.

The place I have loved since day one. The place that there was never any doubt in my mind that I would be going to the second I graduated highschool. The place I first did the Dawgpound Rock and danced to Who Let the Dogs Out. (and yes, we still play Who Let the Dogs out... and Yes, it brings back to the best memories of the first ever football game I ever attended, which also happened to be the day my sister decided to change her mind from Ole Miss to State). The place that I spent most every weekend of my senior year of highschool. The place I met my new and lifelong best friends. The place where I became sisters with the best  group of ladies in the world, Tri Delta. The place where I spent 4 of the BEST years of my life. The place I never wanted to leave (except for the whole school part). The place where I learned the value of a dollar and what it meant to have to work for it. The place where I probably partied a little too hard and didn't study quite enough. The place where I received an education that prepared me for the rest of my life. The place where I learned who I was. The place I made many, many mistakes. The place where I laughed. The place where I cried. The place where I grew. The place where I learned what life was all about. The place I still get just as excited over as I did the first time I ever went. The place where I still spend my fall days rooting for my favorite team. But most of all, the place where I met my very best friend who I now call my husband... one week before graduation!! So, yes this day is worth celebrating  to me bc I cannot imagine my life without Mississippi State University.

  1. I seriously feel like I missed out on the whole college experience by going to a school in Southern California so close to home. Yes, we had the beach, and Disneyland, and are close to Vegas...but I just imagine the whole Southern experience to be so much more fun. I was in a sorority but can only imagine what Greek life is like in your part of the country. AND the football! We didn't even have a football team!!!!
